I rarely say this nowadays about Sisters gigs, but I think this will sell out quite fast. I mean it's a weekend double date in London..this MUST sell out fast! :von:

I'm not sure they will sell both nights but Friday is payday luckily so I'll pick the tickets up just to be safe

I've booked into Camden Lock hotel on the 2nd. 0.1 miles from venue. Stayed here before, not great but so convenient. Bookings going quick!

I booked a place via Airbnb that appears to be inside the Roundhouse. Should be peaceful.

Cant be bothered to check if this is just nicked off the site but Stargreen appear to be confirming no line-up changes:

The Sisters Of Mercy are: Chris Catalyst - guitars, Ben Christo - guitars, Andrew Eldritch - vocals, Nurse - nurse to the Doktor & Doktor Avalanche - drums and bass

Chris Catalyst eats daleks, so he plays guitar.

Ben Christo loves you, so he plays guitar.

Andrew Eldritch would like to believe in redemption, so he sings very quietly.

Nurse is the Right Hand Of God, and Doktor Avalanche is God.

I've looked at reviews by fans on the last tour and some of them said they were disappointing. I haven't seen them for a long time. Looking forward

The last time I saw them in London was at Wembley which wasn't them at their best but they were great in Liverpool and Sheffield earlier this year. :D

Yep, a couple in Wembley in 1990 I think. To be fair I was a bit ahem recreationally challenged at the time but as far as I remember they weren't my favourite gigs. Other people may have enjoyed them more though! :wink:

Thanks for the tip,I had two nights booked at the Kings Cross Premier Inn for around £280 but I've cancelled them and got in here, single room £90 a night. If I see you I'll buy you a drink with the hundred quid you saved me :notworthy:

I'd just have to convince some unsuspecting soul to give me their address...

I went ahead and had them held at the box office. The website says that the box office will be open during the day and prior to the show.

I just have flashbacks to Liverpool where they didn't open the box office until the doors opened. I got around that by turning blue and freezing to death, inspiring pity and an early box office open, but I don't know if I can pull that off in September.
